6His ΔHis 6His ΔHis 6His ΔHis
T = 4 ratio [%] 48.1 ± 2.1 48.2 ± 3.0 43 43 39.9 ± 5.8 41.5 ± 6.4
T = 4 diameter [nm]    33.8 ± 0.1 30.9 ± 0.3
T = 3 diameter [nm]    29.1 ± 0.1 26.8 ± 0.3
  1. a From densitometry measurements
  2. b For estimation of the ratio of the individual particle symmetries (T = 4; T = 3), a collective of 1700 particles were counted
  3. c Hydrodynamic diameter; no discrimination between T = 3 and T = 4 was possible
